The Zen of CSS Design: Visual Enlightenment For The Web by Dave Shea and Molly E. 
Holzschag shows not only how to use CSS effectively but richly as these authors weave an 
evermore sophisticated tapestry of design that graphically portrays that web designers are more 
than just the sum of their parts.  
This book is coffee table multi colored inspirational quality that gently lets us walk through the 
CSS Zen garden and lets us smell the CSS roses and other electronic magic that delights the 
senses. No stone has been unturned in creating designs with CSS, but the ground is teaming with 
rich brown earth full of enzymes, without the smell of fertilizer.
